One wrong move could prove disastrous for your building and improvement project. It’s important to ensure that everything is in order before signing an official contract.
In the case of a dispute, some contracts require mandatory mediation, preventing the owner from filing a lawsuit. In mediation, both parties would resolve their dispute out of court through a neutral mediator.
If you want to add a home addition, pool, hot tub, patio, terrace or any other major adjustment to the house— or, if you want to be the building contractor, you need to make sure it meets the state’s home improvement code. Additionally, any addition of solar panels must adhere to both the California Solar Rights Act and the Solar Shade Act. Building contractors are required to present homeowners with a copy of the contract.
These terms can be listed in the contract or added as an attachment.
